The 2012 Outdoor Family Movie Night Series at the Alliance for the Arts wraps up on Friday, April 27th at 8:00pm with Dolphin Tale starring Morgan Freeman, Kris Kristofferson, Ashley Judd and Harry Connick, Jr.  Popcorn & drinks will be available for purchase, but picnic baskets, blankets and lawn chairs are encouraged.  Bring your family and enjoy a truly heartwarming movie under the stars.

Based on true events, Dolphin Tale tells the story of a young dolphin named Winter who lost her tail in a crab trap and Sawyer, the introverted 11-year-old boy who befriends her.  Sawyer meets the rescued dolphin at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and rallies his friends and family to save Winter by convincing a pioneering doctor to create a unique prosthetic tail to restore the dolphin’s ability to swim.  The movie is free, but a suggested $5 family donation will help ensure continued free programming at the Alliance.  Support is provided by Briers CPA, Riverside Realty, Staging Matters and Winged Foot Title.
